Two days after the Sacramento City Council approved a financing plan to build a $391 million arena for the Sacramento Kings, Gov. Jerry Brown was asked today for his opinion.
"Don't ask me about that," the Democratic governor told The Sacramento Bee's editorial board. "I don't know. I don't know how Santa Clara borrows $850 million (for a football stadium). I don't know how any of these things happen. I don't know where the parking revenue's going to go. I just haven't dedicated myself to that proposition. But I do think it's something we ought to look at."
Brown said Mayor Kevin Johnson invited him to a game the other night. But the governor, who doesn't attend many sporting events, was out of town.
